Wow, April just slipped right on by and it’s already the middle of May and I need to really look at my goals. I’ve been a little all over the place lately. Things are getting done and checked off of to-do lists, but I haven’t been working in a very focused way.
I had mentioned previously that one of my goals was to update my transcription course with some new information and also to publish a version of that to Kindle. I made some progress there – I have the revision written and I’ll be sending that out to the list for that product.
I’m having some difficulty with how I want to handle the Kindle version of it though… Since the product is originally delivered via email they get the main report, plus some bonus short reports, and then there’s a sequence of follow-up messages with more information, Q&A, and so forth. It’s sort of a living entity, I’m always adding to it and sending out little pieces of information to the students. So for the Kindle version I need to figure out if I want to take all those messages and stuff them into the “book” or if I want to somehow funnel Kindle readers to the email list.
I’m leaning towards funneling them into a special “Kindle buyers” email signup page. It could be the last page of the Kindle version of the report that sends them to a URL to enter their email address to get the rest of the ongoing materials. I might include some of the information in the “book” part, because I’m sure not everyone is going to go to the email list and join there to get the rest of it.
The other thing that has me wondering is how to price the Kindle version of the product. Normally it’s a $27 product via Clickbank. That includes updates, a private Facebook group, and all my contact information in case they have questions. I’m having trouble representing that same value squished into a Kindle version.
The other thought that I had was to send them just the report via Kindle and call it a “light” version of Transcription Crash Course for a discounted price and then the URL I send them to on the last page be an “upgrade” to get the list, the updates, the private Facebook group, etc. Does that make sense?
I’d love to hear your thoughts on this and what you would prefer to receive if you were a customer. Leave me a comment below and discuss….
